    Hi,

    Can you please tell me if I understood you correctly. You would like to download submissions as pdf, excel or csv file and to have the edit link included as a new field in the same file next to each submission?

    Or do you want to have this link in the emails sent after the submission is made?

    Best Regards,
    Ben

    Thank you for your response. I would like to download submissions as pdf, excel or csv file and to have the edit link included as a new field in the same file next to each submission. I am trying to run mailing campaigns after the submissions, and need to be able to extract the edit link as new field in excel or another format. Thanx

    Hi,

    For now unfortunately that would not be possible. I will however add a note to our developers about this as a new feature.

    They will take a look at it and update you through this thread when there are any updates in regards to this feature.

    Best Regards,
    Ben

    Hello,

    We have recently enabled an option to include edit links in HTML/Grid reports as well as in Google spreadsheet integration. I hope it will work out for your needs.

    Thank you for your patience

    Kind regards

    Thanks.  That doesn't quite answer my question.

     

    I would like to export the submission to pdf (via email) AND also allow them to edit the submission at a later date.  The earlier post said it wasn't possible, and was then updated to say it now is, but no instructions provided.

     

    regards

    Mel
